The Beauty of Dance, Captured

Dance, in itself, is a beautiful thing. But capturing its effects, just split-seconds after the body casts its energy in any given direction, proves to be equally arresting. Recently, the website Fubiz featured photography that expressed the lingering power of dance, in light, and interestingly, with flour and sand. It’s a delight for the eyes.

Here are a few samples from Jesus Chapa-Malacara‘s work:

And even more striking are those of Ludovic Florent:

To See It Is to Believe It: Look-Alikes Exist

Stamps of uniqueness, if they at all exist, reside in our genetic code; at least that’s the widely-accepted convention. But Francoise Brunelle’s project, I’m Not A Look-Alike!, turns this notion on its head, stunning us with fascinating photos of look-alike strangers.

In an interview with The Daily Mirror, the Canadian artist explains his obsession:

 “The project is about sharing the passion that I have for the likeliness in people. It allows me to concentrate on the face of my subjects and bring the spectator to a close encounter with them…Some of them are from the same city, others from different countries, different cultures. I am fascinated by the fact that a man born and raised in Hungary would bear a strong resemblance to a person born and raised in Canada. Or that a couple, living together just look like brother and sister.”

Below is a sample of his collection of look-alikes. The photos serve as a paradox: they speak volumes about the power of connectedness and yet magnify what can not be explained.
